In addition to afferent and efferent axons, the intermediate zone contains migrating neurons and oligodendrocyte progenitor cells (8). Between the preplate and the intermediate zone is a transient area of loosely packed and loosely organized neurons that form temporary neuronal circuits, particularly with the thalamus (9); this zone is known as the subplate. The subplate is largest at the 22nd gestational week (10). At that time, it is about four times thicker than the cortex and is easily seen on fetal MRI as an area of T1 hypointensity and T2 hyperintensity between the intermediate zone and cortex (10–12).
